    Hello people,

    I'm organising a rolling road day at Prosport Stockport, a place I know a few of you are familiar with, with a few pals from GolfGTI.co.uk. It will be on Saturday 25th October, price is 40 quid a car, but a fiver of this will go to a charity of our choice. You'll get up to 6 runs to get the best figure for your car and will get a print-out just like last time. Peter will also put some refreshments on. There are also some lads coming from SeatCupra.net so could turn into a bit of a Tfsi shoot out.

    We can make a list here if you like listing car and spec, or you could add your name at:

    http://www.golfgtiforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=92214.msg785348#msg785348

    Looking for 20ish cars total, but will do a reserve list as we all know not everyone can make it nearer the time.:yes:

    Cheers

    Gaz

    Prosport need a better way of keeping the cars cool, very important when your dyno testing a highly tuned car especially as the temps can go through the roof in a matter of seconds..

    Is there any indication that they will have any more cooling on this day?

    I mentioned this to Peter when I had my car mapped there, his explanation was because the system the rollers use doesn't load the car as such through the rollers, the heat build up by the engine isn't as great as braked rollers because the engine isn't working so hard, if this is enough to compensate for airflow on the road or the big fans other systems use I'm not sure

    Ah ok I see.. Still I think your know what im talking about, I would be well up for it again, especially as I have now got the big turbo kit on the car..

    But that puts me off, as my car is running pretty high power etc heat build up will be more of an issue..

    You could also post this on S3-talk.com some of the guys on there may be up for it!:)

    Thanks

    You could just get him to do a couple of runs so heat soak isn't such an issue. I know everyone would like to see your motor and how it performs:hubbahubba:

    How can a Dyno measure the engine's maximum power if it doesn't push it to its maximum load? Indeed the "brake" of bhp refers to act of applying a load to resist the rotational force of the engine until the point at which the engine is no longer able to overcome the braking effect.
    But I'm sure someone will explain...:)

    From my experience the TFSi doesn't suffer so much from heatsoak as quickly as the 1.8T's do. I would probably like to see some larger fans being used at ProSport too though.

    Yet my own car produced very repeatable figures at Prosport to other RR's it had been on including Awesome GTI where they have a large fan setup.

    It should be a bit colder too at the end of this month than it was when we went to ProSport in July, nice denser air. :icon_thumright:

    Jonny, have you uprated your intercooler now for your Stage3?

    No still running with the S3 intercooler, its very good actually! Inlet temps never go above 38 degrees on runs and quickly recovers back to 35 after a couple of mins..

    As soon as I go the next step in terms on power on the car ill be upgrading the intercooler

    Turns out I'm going to be up north so will venture over for this too - get a second set of results on my car for comparison!
    I'm interested to see what Leons pulls with the standard air box versus mine with with carbonio and BMC panel....
    Put my down for it too JC, but I'll be coming over from the North East so a later slot if possible.

    When do you need to know by? as jamie might have persuaded me down as part of a mini test of giac mapped s3's.

    i do fancy it but im supposed to be working so i might need to try and wangle the day off.
